I wore this dress to my Homecoming Dance; It was a show stopper! Most all the girls were in black!
I am 5'9" 125lbs. The small fit me perfectly. It felt great on and everyone complimented me. I chose a nude Jimmy Choo open toe pump as opposed to black and think it was the better choice. Loved it!!!

Not my favorite HL :(
Although this picture looks gorgeous on the model, it just didn't do it for me! I also recently had a baby - so my mid-section still where it needs to be! Unfortunately, this dress didn't hide anything! I ended up going with the back up, but this is a really cute dress...just didn't work to great with my body!

Show stopping red dress perfect for dancing the night away!
RTR has amazing customer service! When the dress I originally ordered was returned in poor condition and couldn't be sent to me the next day they provided me a complementary upgrade to this style. And whoa, what an upgrade it was! Unfortunately the S was already rented so they sent the M which I made work. The S would have fit perfectly but I got away with the M due to the tightly knit nature of the fabric. I received so many compliments on this dress and it was so comfortable. The skirt was fun and flirty which was perfect for the dance floor! I didn't want to take the dress off! I will definitely be renting this style again!

Sexy and perfect!
This was an amazing dress! It required another person to zip me into it…but once zipped up…it was perfect. If you have big boobs they will be squished but will look good regardless. This dress is everything you want a dress to be. Tight in a way that makes it sexy but floaty and flirty in a way that allows some room as well. I want to buy this dress.

The perfect red dress!
I have always wanted to wear an Herve dress but have been nervous since I am curvy, however this was the perfect fit. Not only does the material really hold you in, it smooths out your shape! I loved the little cap sleeves, and felt very confident as soon as I put it on. It is just the right amount of sexy for a red dress. I will definitely be wearing this again!

Fun dress, great color.
It took a bit to get the 34DDs tucked in. I couldn't wear a bra but it wasn't a big deal. A like flattened, but certainly held in place. Tried going up to the L but it wasn't any easier and then it was loose at the rib cage.

SO SMALL
This was sent to me as a backup (I didn't choose it). It's a drop waist which isn't at all flattering if you have any sort of tummy. But it was SO SMALL I couldn't even zip it up.

I am exactly your size- very little tummy, but did you think it was too long? Yikes nervous i paid a ton

Show off my curves
I loved and rented the dress because I want to flaunt my breast and waist and hide my problematic area aka my belly. However, due to my height, the bodycon part actually extends to my belly and the flare part is too low. It looks weird so I used fashion tape at the middle to move it up a little bit. Nobody notices and it looks very nice. The color is not as bright as in the picture though. Overall, it is a pretty dress that shows off the curve yet still very comfortable. I might rent it again for another event.
pattyDecember 1, 2014
how much did you fashion tape it?? I rented and am only 5/3 so think I may need to hem a bit?
ThuDecember 2, 2014
Dont worry. Im a lot shorter than you and I have no problem with the overall length. Its just that the drop waist fell at a weird place due to my height so I had to taped the middle, like 2 inches. Also, I have a tummy so I want the flare part to be higher.

FIRE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This dress came brand new with the tag on it!!! It fit very true to size! The flare of the skirt was great!! I was able to achieve that tight hot herve look with out feeling like a sausage!!! Loved this dress! Will definitely wear again!! TONS of compliments! I'm usually a size 2 or 4 and I wore a small in this!
pattyNovember 26, 2014
You are 130 and it fit fine in small? Trying to figure out ! Others have said it was way too small? I am 117 lbs but ony 5'2 so wondering if not the best choice- too long?
AmandaDecember 3, 2014
Hi Patty, Yes It fit me perfect! You may want to try and XS and Small for back up... Length wise it hit me a few inches above my knees. Short but not too short. I'll try and upload a pic if I can!

Can't go wrong with Herve. I normally rent a small in Herve, but I'm glad I had the medium for the extra length in this dress.

Thick weave made it great for cold weather. Incredibly flattering!
This dress was perfection! It fit snugly, but was a thicker fabric, so it hides imperfections. Probably wouldn't be great for a large bust, but no problem for me. It was long enough for a wedding (I'm 5'5), but short enough to still be flirty and fun. I LOVE this dress and would buy it if it wasn't so pricy. I will be renting it in black for an upcoming wedding.

Sorority Formal - Loves it
Wore this to my sorority formal which is holiday themed. I loved the dress, definitely could have worn the small except for the length. It was SO SHORT!! I mean it would've shown everything even though its sort of fit and flare and not really tight. The medium was fine. Hard to wear a bra because the back is a little low. Overall I really loved it!

Beautiful dress for a fancy dinner or black tie affair
I didn't end up wearing this dress since my other dress was more appropriate for the event I was going to. This dress would be perfect for a black tie affair or fancy dinner. Or even valentines date night. Super cute and flirty. Not too short or tight. The flare was a great touch. The only thing I would say is if you have any sort of belly you may want to consider spanx or a different dress all together. And I put it on with a strapless bra and it was perfect.

So happy the Small fit me the best because the M was badly stained and overly dry cleaned (a shade lighter than the S size). Dress was so comfy, even after a steak dinner and a night of non stop dancing. So wish I had gotten a photo of dress without my mink shawl. Love it!!

Perfect dress - summer or winter, doesn't matter!
I first rented this dress for a bachelorette party and that's when I fell in LOVE. The dress fit me like a glove and it was an odd accident I even received it - my original choice from RTR was damaged and they offered me this one as my 4th ranked-ordered choice (out of 5 choices!) available that weekend. Wow, did I underestimate the power of this beautiful red dress! I got so many compliments the entire night and eventually caved in and rented AGAIN for the holiday season. I love this dress so much, I would buy it if I find it in my size. It fits perfectly in all of the right places (bust, shoulders, waist) and the color and fabric make it versatile enough for either the winter (with tights and booties) or summer. I am very petite on top but become broader in the hips, and the cut of this dress is very forgiving in the hips but gives a lot of definition and illusion of filling out the bust and shoulder area.

Fit perfect. Loved how it hugged my hips and then flared out.

Super flattering fit and great material!
Material is heavy and sturdy (like all Herve Legers) and the construction of the dress is super flattering! The skirt portion of the dress came slightly creased, but I was able to (carefully) iron most of it out. My only concern with fit was that after a few hours in a hot/humid space the fabric gave a little and sleeves started slipping off my shoulders.

Sexy!
I felt AWESOME in this dress! Sexy and party ready. So fun to dance in with the skirt. This was my first Herve and I will def be renting this designer again. Dress was small but very flattering especially if you have small waist with fuller hips and butt. Flirty skirt hides that well. Gorgeous color and fabric. LOVED!!!

Pure Fire
I love all Herve Leger dresses. I am a natural 36H cup with a 27 inch waist. It is extremely difficult to find dresses that do not have to be altered or worn with bras; With HL I am usually okay skipping both issues. This dress is a bit risque for a large bust, but the flirty flared bottom balanced it out. It did loosen over the night so I wish I would have went with a medium. I may have to buy this one...le sigh

The xs fit perfect. I'm quite petite so hard to say if it ran small or not. It was a snug as is intended for this type of body con fabric, which somehow ends up being super flattering

Beautiful little red dress!
True to most Herve pieces, this dress was fabulous! I'm 5' 4" with a 32DDD & the size/fit was perfect. The dress was very comfortable and flattering! The material like all Herve pieces was thick and gave a beautiful silhouette. I did not need to wear a bra. Loved this dress & reluctantly returned it. I will absolutely be renting it again!

.
The dress is beautiful and definitely high quality, heavy fabric. My only gripe with it was that it ran small. I wear between a 2-4 in J.Crew (more comfortable in a 4 but a 2 works) so I ordered a S and M. The M was tight! I know that the bandage style dress is supposed to be tight, but this was too much. I'm very chesty so I expected it to be very tight across the chest, but I was worried that the tight stomach panel wasn't flattering and in fact, made my hips look bigger. I did wear the dress, but it was after much convincing from my boyfriend! Definitely a sexy dress but size up!

Great dress for first prom -- super flattering and flirty!
Dress is structured to flatter many body types by accentuating the chest and making the waist look smaller. The neckline is flattering for many face shapes, as well. The material holds everything in place and even makes one appear slimmer. Excellent dress! Hervé Legér is one smart designer -- he knows a woman's body and how to flatter it!

This is like the "sisterhood of the traveling pants" of dresses! It molds to your body!
I'm 5'5", size 32DD usually, and wear a size 4 or 6 in dresses. The size M fit perfectly. The dress will feel snug at first, but it's made of a special fabric that stretches and molds to your body as your body heats the fabric. It literally would fit anyone. Received tons of compliments. The bottom of the dress hits a little lower on the thigh than the stock image makes it appear, it's about 2 inches above the knee (for my 5' 5" height).

beautiful dress and definitely stood out from the crowd
the fit was a bit snug, but as it should be - it is such great quality. the only dissapointment was that the dress had obviously been dry cleaned many times and the color quality was not top notch.
